Yes doesn’t it? It’s sending up more on another small translucent stem, I moved it onto the windowsill to cool it down, give it more light and enjoy it if it’s determined to flower now. @pelly @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

@pelly I wavered but decided to make the decision on a daily basis as how it was looking. Its uncharted territory 😁 I've sent him to Aldi to look at mini greenhouses, it's just too warm in my kitchen, things are accelerating.

This cant be right, it's too small to be flowering yet surely? #question should I remove the flower stem and let it concentrate on growing instead? This is my first one so I really dont know.

Wow, interesting. Did you start these from seed,bare root? An already established plant? I ordered a bare root bleeding heart last fall. Expecting it in the mail in a couple more weeks.

@lesliecole49 no I bought this one potted, my bare root one from Wilkos is growing really well too but nowhere near flowering stage yet.

I'd leave it and enjoy it 😊 They were probably kept in a greenhouse or a warm storage place and that's why they're early.
